Allergies Cold and Cough Respiratory

Coughs, Colds, and Allergies  

"The most common complaint next to digestive disorders is respiratory disorders. The respiratory system is not only vulnerable to inhaling pathogens, it is also vulnerable to dust, pollen, and pollution. Many people who experience a respiratory cold end up with a chronic cough that lingers. People with allergies also often experience a chronic cough."


What to do when early symptoms appear? 

Ayurveda recommends early intervention to help prevent more chronic conditions. A light diet of warm cooked foods, sipping hot water or herbal teas, and low stress along with plenty of nighttime sleep is the best defense. Herbal products help alleviate many symptoms and speed up the recovery time.
